registry fix...

Navigate to HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel. Add a new DWORD value here called Connwiz Admin Lock and set it to a value of 1. The change should take place immediately without having to reboot and will apply to all new IE browser windows opened.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER. BUT if you are lost at this point i strongly advise NOT to go rummaging round in your registry...

I am not saying the reg fix will actually work for you but i would give the task to someone more PC literate.

Be a good idea to BACK UP your registry before you start...
